Psychiatrist Analyzes Brain Scans Of 21-Year-Old With Anger And Drug Issues
Dr. Daniel Amen, founder of the Amen Clinics, New York Times bestselling author, and author of the new book The End of Mental Illness, says that most psychiatric problems are not mental health issues but brain health issues.
“Most psychiatrists never look at the brain, and that is why stigma lives, because we don’t see this as a medical illness; we see it as a moral failing. And that’s just wrong,” the psychiatrist says.
